Science for Progress

because science is fundamental in the 21st century

EXTENDED Episode Released: B&D talk: SciComm, Publishing, and Genetic Modification

The extended episodes of our podcast are only available for Patrons for the first 7 months before they are made public.

In this episode we talk about a new “overlay” journal, which circumvents a couple of sources for Conflicts of Interests. We then discuss whether every scientists needs to be involved in science communication, especially whether they should be forced to write a jargon-free abstract for lay people. And finally we talk about genetically modified crops, animals, and humans!
